Every year, ENTRE hosts Home Movie Day, an annually celebrated global event where archivists, film enthusiasts and community members gather to learn how to care for their home movies. This year, we are partnering with the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and the Texas Film Commission to bring the Texas Film Round-Up to the RGV! Services are offered in exchange for the donation of a digital copy to the archive program. This award-winning public history program has resulted in the preservation of more than 45,000 films and videotapes. Participants will also be able to share a copy of their materials with ENTRE, in support of our activities to preserve and share stories of the RGV. The last time TAMI visited the Rio Grande Valley for this project was in 2009, so we are very excited to have them join us this year!
In an effort to make this program accessible to folks across the RGV, we've partnered with 12 libraries and heritage centers as designated drop-off sites for the surrounding communities to bring their home movies and other Texas-related films and videos. To participate, please bring your home movies (film and video) to one of the drop-off sites listed below between September 25 through October 4 during their hours of operation:
In addition to these drop-off sites, we are also hosting a weekend of events to celebrate RGV culture and history, including our annual Home Movie Day celebration! You are invited to bring your home movies to any of these events to be included in the Texas Film Round-Up program.
